Our trip was from May 28 - June 4 at the Marriott Surf Club. This was our second visit to Aruba (not including day trips on cruises) and we are already planning on trips back in 2012 & 2013. We find even though we like traveling to other islands, Aruba is the cleanest and friendliest we have visited.

The Marriott Surf club is great and we spent most of our days in the lazy river, walking on the beach and eating and drinking. Not bad huh? The weather was perfect and we even had a little rain on Thursday.

All of our meals were great. We ate at the following:

  • Smokey Joe’s Sat night…(good food & tons of it)
  • Madame Jeanette’s Sunday night…(great food, exceptional service and a great guitar player)
  • Leftovers in the room on Monday
  • Simply Fish (on the beach at the Marriott)(one of our top 3 meals in Aruba)
  • Linda’s House of Pancakes (3 times, 2 for breakfast and 1 for lunch)(yummy on all counts)
  • Texas de Brazil Wed night (you can’t go wrong here and will never leave hungry)
  • Leftover pizza in the room Thurs
  • And the Italian restaurant at the Hyatt on Friday night. (I can’t remember the name but the food was great)

All meals were really good with MJ’s, Simply Fish and the Hyatt all being exceptional. We can’t wait to go back next year.
